This flanders brown has healthy sweetness that unites a pretty complex mix of sour lactic acidity with muscadine tartness finished by considerable minerality.

Bottle from Lizardville, Cleveland had no date.

Will definitely be drinking this one again!

On tap at Victoire in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark blood-red, slightly hazy, with no head, and only a little bit of lacing.

Smells like sour cherries, green apple, vinegar, and lactic acid.

The taste is similar. Fairly sweet with cherry flavor up front, almost like slightly less sweet maraschino cherry juice, some acidity washes over the palate, along with similar sour cherry tastes.

Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly easy to drink. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel.

This was a pretty good Oud Bruin. It's probably a little sweeter than typical, but that's ok with me.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark brown color free of sediment. Aroma of red wine vinegar, oak and malts.
Mild tartness greets the palate along with brown sugar, port and vinegar. Sherry notes from oxidation, along with a nice cherry flavor. Medium bodied, well carbonated, tart mineral finish. Musty oak, faint herb and grass, but moreso a pretty solid oud bruin ale. Cocoa like malt underneath a light tartness. Overall, pretty good beer here, Id reach for this again.
